it could have done with a bit more health and it's easy to get trapped around the bridge area (pretty annoying), but the theme (teleports, pads, platforms etc.) is beautifully realised.

Great map, some probs with fps if there's a lot of ppl in the RG room. As a note to greengiant and captain (horatio) chaos's comments you can reach all four platforms in the RG room from the pad (tho' you prob all knew that anyways :p). Personally I can't see why ppl are slating the gameplay so much, each to their own I suppose. 8 from me.

Picturesque, but I felt like I was on a slip n' slide, looking for danger. Same feeling as on Darren's Revelation..both are excellent maps, but there something about the physical movement on both of these maps that's not as crisp as I like. Have no idea why.

The map is pretty, no question about it. As far as game play goes, you got a good sized courtyard, a cat walk with ammo, a bounce pad for that "sea sick factor" and a couple of nice spots to get trapped if you fancy a powerup. What more do you need?

Thow I think the map is a little out of scale for that spanking gameplay, which should be first place. Big 8/10

This map is one fantastic piece of art, magnificent design, great textures, and a brillant looking sky. Weapon choice and placement was good, and the lack of health helped to keep me on my guard. Liked the layout a lot, and thought it was well connected. The waterfall was a great idea and adds even more character to this level, unfortunately water is so clear that I couldn't camp behind it, only joking.

In my opinion the only thing that needs tweaking is the central bounce pad in the room with the rail gun, would prefer to be able to reach all four platforms from the ground.

Thanks so much Mr Clean, for making this great level freely available to the Quake community.

I can't wait 2 play diz map! But unfortunately I'm experiencing some troublems which I won't bother to explain 'cause they are sooooo silly!

One more little thing to everyone out there!

I sometimes go nuts and do weird stuff like this:

I've let 7 bots compete on nitemare in q3dm18 space chamber..

Major...came out, after one hour, with a score of 445 frags. :o

Numero 2, sorlag, had a score of only....275 frags.

NOw this is what I call living in the fastlane!!!!!!

7 outta 19 for me. But only because it is better than your average level. Otherwise, I was not as impressed as some of the earlier comments on this string. Let me clarify for the people who are not so well spoken what it was that "sucked monkey balls" about this level. The size was good. The weapons were good. But the weapons selction and amount of weapons and ammo for the size was not good. With the level's open spaces, the plasma gun for some wide open strafing was sorely missed. The weapons played best with 4 I've found. But the size of the level plays best with 6 ...maybe 7. It may not sound like that big of a deal, but that's the biggest thing I've found to be "strategically" wrong with the level. One of my other problems were there was not enough health. I think it totally distracts from conentrating on the play of the game when all your'e doing is looking for that 25 point health ball that hasn't been taken yet. My last and final gripe about it is this: (and I save it for last because it may be my machine or my configuration @ PII 350 192 MB RAM, V3 3k card) The area around the (one and only) rocket launcher is a bit lagged for me. Especially with 3-4 bots in the same room all firing rockets.

But like everyone else has said, "It was pretty." I just don't think a level with these kinds of "stategical" lackings deserves anything over a 7.

yeah this looks like a pretty map. Thing is I'm downing it right now so...i'm kinda curious what it'll be like :)

Ooze pleaz don't say id's map suck when it comes to gameplay!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the coolest maps for quake arena is defenitily the arena gate. YAH OK SO IT IS SMALL ETCETERA BABLABLABLABLABLA

but the flow, gameplay, connectivity are there. And hey, it's a pretty map. Just to give you an example ;)

Deva station is pretty good too.

I hate it when someone tries to tear down the id maps. After all, thanks to them you can play quake arena and make those ooh so beautiful and cool maps, models and mods right?

O'right, no more lectures. heh

Luckily there are so many good add-on maps.

Hmm, now I've played the map and well it's really not that good. Some of the textures are interresting but the gameplay was boring. The map is not that bad but I can't understand why all of you act if this map would be THE BEST. Well, it certainly isn't. I gave it a 7 for the good textures (and the great waterfall :]). Hmm that's my opinion.

This map is truly a work of art, the custom textures are superb, and the waterfall is really cool, only wish I could have hidden (camped) behind it. The only section of the map that needs some attention is the central bounce pad in the room containing the Red Armour and Rail gun, would prefer it to have a bit more elevation so as to allow access to all platforms from the ground.

Mr Clean your map is really top notch.

jeeze guys...

I mean sheesh, its a pretty looking map n all but if you want pretty shit, you can go look at screenshots or better yet, play a different game.

I didn't hate the map and the gameplay on kihaku isn't all that bad but when I play a map that's all I'm looking forward to. I rated the gameplay at a 6 but the prettiness at a 10 (in hope of something higher). The map was certainly beautiful, no question but the gameplay was flat and one-dimensional with a couple of items thrown higher then the others for good measure. If it were purely gameplay I was rating, I would give this map a 4, but since I loooove to do tricks, I had to give it a 10 in tricks and an 8 in item placement (the GL placement sucked). The tricks in this map are awesome and fun, although there are only like 3 tricks, I really enjoyed those 3 so I gave it a 10 in tricks.

great map but with a score of 9.25, I would expect much better gameplay.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Great textures, very clear sense of style. I liked the waterfalls and the bridges especially. My only gripe would be that its so wide open it doesn't have that much flow. I guess I like some corridors and cut-off points to enhance the action. Ran a bit slow on my meager machine. Great job though!

I think this map is a solid piece of work as well. At first the flow did not seem to go very well, but the more I learned the map, the better I liked it. I think MrClean did a fine job with the custom textures and I had no problem with the jump pads as some others seemed to have had. I also seemed to get my butt whooped by the bots on this level. I think maybe this level may just have a bit more of a learning curve then others... although it doesn't seem al that complex. maybe not THE best custom map out there but it is very nice, and the change of theme is refreshing.

Here is a nice map- much better than the Japanese Castles map IMO. Good layout, texturing, and the theme is carried out well. The waterfall is VERY nicely done. I was starting to think that the rocket jump up to the powerup spawn was a little too difficult until I found the portal that takes you right to it.

Great work- a keeper.

Gorgeous level, and really interesting flow and connectivity. For some reason, the bots really kick my ass on this level. I had to play it around ten times to actually win on my regular difficulty setting (as opposed to maybe two or three max on other levels. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this, and what special tricks for bot navigation Mr. Clean might have used--or is it just a fluke?

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but if you think it is such a poor map, perhaps it would be more helpful to give some specific, supported reasons as to why you are of this opinion. At least that way you might help the author improve. Not to mention it will help you not look like such an arse.
